Session 4H: Public Realm: Exterior

30 October 2017
3:45 PM – 5:15 PM

Too often, spaces lack the character and connectivity required to make the leap from “space” to “place.” However, numerous examples from around the world point the way to successful public exteriors. These will be studied in detail to better understand the process of placemaking.
